Summary

On a remote island, everyone is a suspect.... 

When private investigator Hanlon is hired to protect famous yoga instructor Camille Anderson on her Scottish island retreat, she thinks this may be her simplest job yet. 

But when an attack on Camille's life goes wrong, it soon becomes clear that there is a murderer on the island - and Hanlon will stop at nothing to track them down. 

With only a small group of guests the suspects are clear, but as the body count rises Hanlon must step up to find out who the killer is before it’s too late.... 

A tense, atmospheric listen from Alex Coombs. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons and Lisa Regan.

Pleased I persevered with the first P.I Hanlon

I wasn't sure I was going to get away with the narration at first. I speeded up the reading of the first book by .5x and it was okay. After a few chapters I was hooked. Buried for good has been my favourite and I hope there are more to come. I think Hanlon is great. I have ended up really enjoying the narrator,.

Craggy Island Chaos

Strange tale of goings on with new agey yoga guru and an aged rock star, a hilarious knife throwing magician and a love affair when Hanlon has no chemistry whatsoever with Murdo. Well scripted, darkly funny at times crime romp. VERY ENTERTAINING

Hanlon, my hero! 🙂

Looking forward to book 4. So enjoying the Scottish noir, the character development & a bit of escapist nonsense. The narration is perfect..

Excellent All Round

This is part 3 of Hanlon as a private investigator and it’s the best of the trilogy. Great writing and characters and narrator Carolyn Bonnyman is perfect! Book 2 took a bit of a dip after enjoying book 1 but this was excellent. I love Hanlon’s character.. a very strong lead

Likeable, realistic characters brilliant narration

Pi Hanlon is a beautifully flawed individual with a stubborn streak!
Great ingredients for a detective.

My least favourite Alex Coombs book

I’ve listened to 2 other Alex coombs books and absolutely loved them, hence downloading the third but this one was not a patch on the other two. It just didn’t have the same liveliness and pace of the previous two, and also included in an element of the magical/psychic which I really didn’t like. It was ok but if I’d have read this one first, I wouldn’t have downloaded any of the authors other stories, which would have been a real shame.

exciting and entertaining

I like reader very much. Her lovely accent is perfect for this story. I don't think I'd like the main character in real life but in this series I really enjoyed the tale very much.
